The Honda Motocompo is a tiny folding scooter sold by Honda 1981-1983.[1]

The Motocompo was introduced as a "Trunk Bike" to fit inside subcompact cars like the Honda Today and the new Honda City. The handlebars, seat, and foot-pegs fold into the scooter's rectangular plastic body to present a clean, box-shaped package of 1185 mm L × 240 mm W x 540 mm H. Honda's initial sales projection for the domestic market was 8,000 City and 10,000 Motocompo.[2] In all, 53,369 Motocompos were sold by the end of production in 1983.[3]

In fiction

The Motocompo is probably best known as the bike used by Natsumi Tsujimoto on You're Under Arrest. It was released as a Bandai Model kit.
